I am a new member. My mom was diagnosed with Stage IV OVCA back in 2007. She had a total hysterectomy followed by chemo treatments. She has been in remission 3 times, and has been on 3 or 4 difference meds. Her most recent was Gezmar, with no response. She is going in today to start Topotecan.
I am really scared. She had ascites and had the fluids removed last week. She's been complaining of abdominal pain (5 on a rate of 1-10, 10 being the worst). She's lost appetite and as a result has lost some weight.
Is there anyone out there who has experienced this and maybe can give me some advice? She is thinking of not going through chemo anymore but I don't want her to give up. :-(
